Review Notifications: A Guide to Appbot Emails

Appbot offers several review notifications that users can elect to receive via email.

1. Review Emails

Review emails contain the new reviews you receive for your tracked sources and are our most popular tool for review notifications. On the Manage Sources page, you can tell us how often we should email your new reviews to you. Under the ‘Review Emails’ dropdown you will see three options to choose from:

  • ‘Continuous’ review notifications: we will email your new reviews as soon as we fetch them for continual app analysis.
  • ‘Daily’ review notifications: we will email your new reviews we’ve fetched for that app in one daily batch for daily app analysis.
  • ‘Daily Digest’ review notifications: we will email you a daily summary email with a breakdown of new reviews and activity for your sources. Note: daily digest emails will only show a maximum of 50 reviews for a source, and a maximum of 15 reviews per country per source.

Daily & Continuous Review Emails

At the top of your review email, you will see your average star rating together with a table showing how many of each star ratings you received. Below this, you will see some overall app stats for a quick comparison to see if your review sentiment is increasing or decreasing.

If you’ve selected Daily or Continuous review emails you’ll receive an email like this:

You’ll also receive a CSV file attached in the Daily and Continuous review emails with a list of all your new reviews.

Daily Digest Review Emails

The Daily Digest email provides a summary by combining review data for up to 15 apps into one daily email. For example, if you set 30 apps to Daily Digest you would receive 2 emails per day. The Daily Digest is a way to stay on top of your review notifications without cluttering your inbox.

Below the summary of your apps, we will tell you which sources had no new reviews that day.

2. Weekly Summary Emails

Weekly Summary emails give you an insightful app analysis showing how each of your apps have been performing in the app store over the past 7 days.
At the top of the email, you will see what date range the summary is for.

Below, you will see individual report cards for each of your apps. Report cards show key app analysis information about each app’s performance over the last week.

Information such as grade, review volume, average star rating, a breakdown of the ratings, popular words and the most common topics of the week.

The app that appears first was the app in your account that received the most reviews in the period. Apps are then ranked in descending order of the count of reviews received in that period.

3. Scheduled Reports

Appbot’s scheduled reporting lets you configure Appbot Dashboards to be delivered straight to your inbox as a beautifully formatted PDF report. These dashboards are easy to set up, can contain whatever Appbot data is relevant to you and allow you to perform your app analysis on a frequency that you determine.

To set up a custom report, you first need to build a Dashboard with all the widgets you want your report to contain – click here for a guide on how to set up a Dashboard.

Once you have your dashboard setup, all you need to do is choose when you would like the dashboard emailed to you as a PDF.
